a city guide: 36 hours in venice

A City Guide: Venice
Back again with another, this time mini, city guide! We're over in Venice for this one, with a slightly different format as we were only there for 36 hours so as much as we ran around doing/eating/tourist-ing as fast as humanly possible - it's not a full guide per se but still features some pretty pictures and some suggestions of what to do when there.

1. go by boat
Yoohoo, most obvious Venice thing to do, and pretty unavoidable but I had to leave an ode to it. Sailing everywhere is so much more fun (and breezy) than getting on a tube or whatever. We used the public transport boats, which were pleasant enough.

£? €7.50 per ride

2. majer coffee/pastries
The only food recommendation on here, which is bizarre for me but everywhere is of a pretty good standard in Italy. I'd just say use your instinct as if it looks gross, then it might be, but in general the food is good in most restaurants.
Anyway, Majer was near to our hotel and was just a really nice modern, pastry shop with good coffee. Which is surprisingly hard to come by in Italy (really).

£? €2-3 a coffee €3-5 for pastries

3. hilton molino stucky
James booked this hotel as a surprise so I had no say in it, but he did good. Unfortunately the rooftop pool was closed but that aside, the rooms were big and regal and the rooftop bar was great to chill with a glass of rosé after a hard day on your feet. It was about as modern as you're going to get in a historic city, and had it's own transport links into San Marco which was handy. Breakfast was also a real winner.

£? £190+ per night depending on when you travel

4. window shopping in San Marco
Not going to lie, I wish I wasn't window shopping but what can you do? San Marco is bursting with all the best designer stores so after mooching around in Céline and Gucci desperate to make a purchase, I left empty handed. Damn saving.

I also made a lil vlog while we were there, which is really awkward and close to my face but in honour of it being the first complete vlog that I've ever managed, I posted it here.
P.S. be fancy as hell if you subscribed to my YT as I'm a total noob.

lots of love xxx

  3. Even if the guide is small, I really like the way you've done it! I'd love to visit venice one day and go on the boats, I bet the pasta and pizza was amazing too, so that would be hard to put into a recommendation, but the pastries look so tasty!

  4. fabulous pics.thanks for sharing it.

  5. I would love to visit Venice, definitely in the bucket list of cities to visit. Going around by boat is a must!
